Great way to see the Cliffs of Mohr really beautiful. Make sure to take a pill if you get sea sick the waters were rough on the way back. The Aran Island was interesting and fun to explore I recommend taking a tour guided trip of the island

“Ferry to Aran islands and cliffs of moher”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2012

On time, courteous and very efficient. Ticket sellers, funny, welcoming. No criticisms at all. They take you very close to the cliffs. No better view than looking up.

“Well worth the money”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2012

The cliffs are amazing. What more can be said? This is the way they should be viewed. The dolphins playing in the bay were a plus.
The operation is friendly - and very Irish. We had to wait for the tide to return past the promised time. But so what? We just spent time on the beach and chatting with the friendly the staff. As for safety I noted the life raft in the back where we were.
What would help is a guide on-board who could point out basic safety tips before leaving the dock, but more importantly to talk about what we were seeing. It wouldn't cost much for the company to add but would add a lot to the experience.

“Inisheer and The Cliffs of Moher - Family loved it all!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2012

A trip to Ireland is hardly complete without a visit to the Cliffs of Moher...and I really wanted to go to the Aran Islands - how wonderful to find a trip that would touch on both.

We started our trip by packing a lunch and heading for Inisheer. It was a lovely island that bowled us over with the rock walls. Walking thru Inisheer was like being in a life size maze - how cool is that? My Irish born husband was thrilled to find all sorts of candy from his youth in the local store - so we stocked up. Then it was back to the boat for the cruise around the Cliffs of Moher. Fantastic! It was beautiful - it took our breath away - and we all agreed it was a not-to-miss activity. The crew was friendly and helpful.

When we got back to shore we headed to the top of the Cliffs - and walked along the edge.

It was really neat to see the Cliffs from both vantage points - it became even more dramatic seeing it from the sea and then from the land. I strongly encourage you to do it all in a day.

“Cliffs of Moher -view from the sea”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2012

beautiful views from the sea to the cliffs of moher, very funny boat-trip. A man of the crew made photos for a tourist. As the camera didn´t worked he ordered the captain to make a second turn to have the right motive in the background - crazy!
Unfortunately the trip doesn´t went up to the other end of the cliffs.
